As you may be aware, there has been extensive construction at 10th & Green this summer. Despite our best intentions, construction challenges, including material delays and a shortage of manpower, have delayed the first day of school for students.
The first day of school for students will be Wednesday, August 31. These two extra days will enable teachers and staff to ensure that all spaces are clean, safe, and ready to accept students. Please note that we will need to make up the two days that will be missed, however, those make-up days have not yet been determined.
Upon completion of this project, the following improvements will greet you and your student:
Creation of a secure entry including renovations to and reconfiguration of the main office
Exterior window and door replacement
Installation of an elevator
Two new ADA compliant bathrooms
Repairs to the brick on the outside of the building to ensure a safe and weather-tight building exterior
Partial sidewalk and parking lot repair
Ongoing Project Updates
As with all large construction projects, there will be minor cosmetic work that will extend into the beginning of the school year. To follow the progress of this work, visit https://www.readingsd.org/construction
